Ultrarunner extraordinaire Courtney Dauwalter has picked up in 2024 right where she left off last year. After famously winning three of ultrarunning’s most epic races  during the span of about nine weeks last summer—Western States 100, Hardrock 100, and Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc—the 39-year-old athlete from Leadville, Colorado, defended her Transgrancanaria 126K title in a decisive wire-to-wire win in late February and won the Mount Fuji 100-miler for the second time on April 27, placing third overall.

There’s No Such Thing as Too Much Post-Workout Protein
Better Nutrition Magazine
by ckeyes
1M ago
One of the key articles of faith of modern sports nutrition is that your body can only use a certain amount of protein at a time. Opinions differ on what that amount is. It might be as little as 20 grams; it might be as much as 40 grams, particularly for older adults whose bodies are less sensitive to the muscle-growth-stimulating effects of protein. Maybe it needs to be expressed relative to body size, like 0.4 grams per kilogram of body weight, rather than as a fixed number. Those details don’t matter here; the point is that there’s a maximum. The reason that’s important is that most North ..read more

You’ve never seen a race quite like this before—and it’s changing the face of running for rookies and elite athletes alike. Every Woman’s Marathon, powered by Team Milk, is a U.S. marathon designed by women, for women. It was born of a clear need: the dire lack of female-centric marathon experiences available for distance runners. Though almost half of American marathon participants are women, 60 percent of female runners feel that endurance races cater more ..read more

Honoring Body and Plate with Lifestyle Medicine

In medical school, my education in nutrition was compressed into a single one-hour lecture that delved into the complexities of biochemical reactions in our blood and digestive system. While it established an understanding of digestion, it didn’t prepare me to address my patients’ regular inquiries about eating for their individual needs. As the questions persisted, I grew increasingly disheartened by my inability to offer more than a vague “it depends,” forcing the extra step of making an appointment with a nutritionist.  In an effort to better support my patients, I began studying Life ..read more

This article was originally published on Clean Eating.  If the pandemic taught us anything, it was the importance of stocking your pantry with shelf-stable canned foods you can count on to help get a meal on the table, without a trip to the grocery store. But historically, canned foods have gotten a bad rap as second-rate options that come up short in nutrition and flavor – almost to the point where most people are slightly embarrassed to roll up to the check-out counter with a cart populated by foods stuffed into tins. This is a shame, because the truth is many canned foods are still nu ..read more
